networks for the poor in new mexico. i believe if the federal government would have block granted the state of new mexico 43% less money, done away with all the strings and the mandates that i could have effectively overseen the delivery of health care to the poor. i think you apply that same template to medicare, health care for those over 65, get the federal government out of the health care business completely, give it up to the states -- in this case block grants that balance revenu with expenditures -- and that's how we're going to get out of this. we're going to -- giving it up to the states, 50 laboratories of innovation and best practice, i think that's exactly what we will have. we'll have some fabulous success, we'll also have some horrible failure. failure will get avoided, success will get emulated. but that's how we're going to find our way out of this. >> host: gary johnson is joining us from new mexico this morning. he will be with us for about 40 more minutes. we'll put the phone numbers on the bottom of the screen as we take a look at the libertarian nominee and his positio

that the american plan to hand over to a credible, stable afghan government will work. these village elders tell me once u.s. troops leave, a civil war will begin, and u.s.-trained afghan forces will not be able to stop it. are you preparing for this fight? are you already stockpiling weapons and ammunition and getting yourself ready? "yes, we are. we will definitely fight," he says. and what about the afghan government? it's meaningless here, they say. you think it's possible that the taliban will try and come back?

. it's a little more complicated than that. the federal government's was offering massachusetts $385 million, i believe, and that covered about half of the cost of providing care to uninsured people. governor romney had said at i have an opportunity to save the state a lot of money, because if we did not take the federal money, it would have gone away, we would not have access to it anymore. with health care reform, we are able to accept this large sum of money and free some of the cost of providing care for people who don't have health insurance. host: we're learning about the health care law that governor romney signed into law in massachusetts with the reports from the boston herald christine mcconvillechristine. she's been with the herald five years. she also reported for the boston globe before that. we have a phone line set up especially for massachusetts residents. and republicans and democrats can call us as well as independent scholars. -- callers. let's look at some details of how the health care law has played out. 98% of adults are now covered. nearly 100% of children are

the conservative idea that we wouldn't have this big government, we would have individual responsibility. suddenly republicans say, oh, individual responsibility from obama, no. that's socialism. we want to be the pro-moocher party. just go into the emergency room and let the government pay for it. >> come on. come on. >> obama adopting a republican idea. >> in general though i think the idea that this was a republican idea, this was an idea that a couple think tankers put forward, a few republican politicians latched onto. it wasn't an idea that republicans as a whole had rallied behind. and i think you're right, van, there's a whole in the republican narrative. there isn't a republican alternative. that's not the same thing as saying the president's bill is just what reasonable -- >> okay. hold that thought. we're going to get to unsolicited advice next. we'll be back in a second. don't go away. more next. now, that's what i call a test drive. silverado! the most dependable, longest lasting, full-size pickups on the road. so, what do you think?

meant governing right quick. but you know i go back to something i say every time, that people have to remember that, you know, thanks to two books, one by robert draper the other by michael grinwald we know between the time obama was elected president and the time he was inaugurated, republicans met at least twice, the leadership met at least twice to hatch a plan to just, you know, obstruct the incoming president no matter what. even though the economy was falling off the cliff it was all about obstruct him in 2009, to take back the house or both chambers in 2010 and win the white house in 2012. no matter what they didn't want president obama to succeed. they saw it as a success for him rather than a success for the country. >> i questiguess the question t have or quotes that will haunt him, the closing of guantanamo, comprehensive immigration reform. the problem with all that is the answer is republican stood in the way, didn't want to play ball, which you could say a fair assessment but does it sound after you have the same answer to each question, does it sound whiney? >> i thi

think what you've seen the last week is more where he really would be when it comes to governing. i think he's had to do a lot of things. he's had to pretend in a way that's damaged his image and his credibility. he's had to pretend to get conservatives excited. now conservatives are so frustrated with the campaign they'll take anything, they'll even take a moderate mitt so he has extreme flexibility for the next couple of weeks. and he has to seize the moment. >> well, i've got to tell you, i was excited, mika, during the debate, two things i saw. one, him focusing on how he was bipartisan, how he got things done in massachusetts, how it made me meet with democratic leaders every monday. i loved that. americans love that. they're hungry for that and i'm so glad he did it. that's one. and two, i loved it, i said it yesterday, i will say it today, i loved him saying i will not cut a tax that will raise the national deficit. now, everybody can obsess on his 87 -- and obsess on what he said during the primaries. but that sent a message to me, jim vandehei. >> of the philosophy. >> that
